However, according to the RealClearPolitics website, Mr Trump now has a 44.6 per cent approval rating in collated polls, nearly exactly the same as when he came to office in January 2017.
At only the third impeachment trial of a U.S. president, Trump is all but assured of being acquitted Wednesday, the day after his annual "State of the Union" speech, which the president said will carry a "very, very positive message". After the arguments, the Senate goes back into normal session to allow lawmakers to give speeches about impeachment on the floor from late Monday into Wednesday, before they reconvene as the impeachment court at 4 p.m. Wednesday and vote.
In the Senate, Republicans hold a 53-47 advantage and there's nowhere near the two-thirds needed for conviction and removal. And now she will have to rely on the record compiled by the House to decide whether to vote to remove him from office.
Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Mitt Romney, R-Utah, voted with Democrats for witnesses but against admitting new documents. Democrats argued that every other impeachment trial of USA officials has called witnesses.
Why Trump wanted Congress-approved assistance to Ukraine delayed is the central question of his impeachment and was the greatest point of tension in the Senate trial.
Alexander, 79, said he would have made the same decision in Trump's impeachment trial even if it weren't an election year. Will Trump gloat or express any regret over the Ukraine matter after key GOP senators during the trial criticized his actions as improper, but ultimately not impeachable?
Bolton has reportedly detailed his direct interactions with Trump over Ukraine in a book which the White House is seeking to block.
US presidents who have been impeached or threatened with impeachment by the House of Representatives
President Donald Trump's impeachment trial resumes for final arguments Monday before an expected acquittal later in the week that Democrats have said will be invalid because no witnesses testified.
Democrats said he conditioned the aid on Ukraine announcing investigations, including into his potential 2020 Democratic election challenger Joe Biden.
That is the crux of the case against Mr. Trump.
Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Trump ally, said House prosecutors - known as "managers" - had already presented enough evidence to make their case and there was no need for further witnesses.
Many of the Republican senators who voted Friday against allowing new witnesses and other evidence in President Trump's impeachment trial said the House Democratic prosecutors proved their case - Trump did it - but using appropriated USA military aid and a White House visit as leverage to get a foreign country to investigate a domestic political rival didn't rise to the level of removal from office.
When asked if the Senate's partisan vote will set a unsafe precedent, Alexander said, "If you start out with a partisan impeachment, you're nearly destined to have a partisan acquittal".
